FosterQuan Becomes Largest Nationally and Locally Minority-Certified Immigration Law Firm

Also Is World's Largest Minority Owned Immigration Law Firm

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - February 17, 2010) - The Houston Minority Supplier Development Council (HMSDC) recently certified FosterQuan as a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), making it the largest immigration law firm to receive both national and local minority certification. The HMSDC is the certifying organization for minority-owned businesses interested in working with major corporations and governmental entities.

FosterQuan also is the largest minority owned immigration law firm in the world and was recognized as the 2009 Minority Professional Services Firm of the Year by the National Minority Business Council.

"Thousands of major corporations are developing and expanding their minority business supplier programs and this MBE certification provides FosterQuan with significant opportunities to connect with companies and organizations needing expertise in immigration," said Richard Huebner, president of HMSDC.

"Our immigration clients range from very diverse small businesses to the largest multi-national corporations, and they expect us not only to say that we value diversity and inclusion, but actually demonstrate those tenets in our own business," said Charles Foster, co-chairman of FosterQuan.

Gordon Quan, also co-chairman of FosterQuan, added, "Our national and local minority certifications, along with our community efforts, reflect our strong commitment to our clients and the communities in which we have a presence."

While many firms provide employment-based immigration services, such as Form I-9 audits and employer sanction strategies, FosterQuan also boasts an accomplished litigation section that argued, and won, before the U.S. Supreme Court. The firm also handles temporary work and investor visas, family-based immigration, citizenship, and global immigration compliance management.

Charles Foster and FosterQuan are gaining global acclaim on another level as a result of Foster being played by actor Kyle MacLachlan in the movie "Mao's Last Dancer," based on the autobiography of renowned Chinese dancer Li Cunxin. Foster represented Cunxin, who defected from China in 1981 after visiting Houston during a cultural exchange program. The movie will be released in the United States in late 2010.
